The College of Southern Nevada Department of Fine Arts will host an exhibition of clay and pigment paintings by New York artist, William Ruller. Ruller’s artwork explores the visual language of dilapidated areas of metropolitan and rural sites as it combines clay with traditional painting materials. “William Ruller: Lowland” will begin Friday, February 10 and will run through Saturday, March 18, 2017. Mr. Troutman will participate in an artist talk on Thursday, February 9, at 6 p.m. in room H207 at the North Las Vegas Campus. An artist reception will take place on Friday, February 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery.
In his work, Ruller uses clay and traditional painting to reinterpret these residual spaces into rich and powerful abstract images. William Ruller earned his B.A. in painting and ceramics from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh and his MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Ruller has exhibited nationally in numerous group and solo exhibitions. He has also taught for the College of Charleston and for the Savannah College of Art and Design in Lacoste France. Ruller currently resides in upstate New York.
